Experts slugfest: 2023 Golden Globe winner predictions

The Golden Globes are back — well, they never really left, but they’re back on TV. And on a Tuesday. Who will win at the first awards show of the new year? Gold Derby editors and Experts Christopher Rosen and Joyce Eng are here to make their winner predictions in film and TV.

“The Banshees of Inisherin” leads the way with eight nominations, but it is not the favorite to take home Best Comedy/Musical Film. That position belongs to six-time nominee and Oscar Best Picture frontrunner “Everything Everywhere All at Once.” Will the A24 continue its momentum or will another Martin McDonagh movie nab the top prize again? In drama, “The Fablemans” leads the way, but we’ve both gone off of Steven Spielberg‘s memoir piece.

On the TV side, drama series is even more of a question mark as you can make a case for all five nominees and no show over-performed in nominations. Could “The Crown” prevail for the third time for a moderately received fifth season? After “The White Lotus” only got one nomination last year, will the “Sicily” installment walk away with multiple trophies? And after the massive success of “Wednesday,” is Jenna Ortega a shoo-in for comedy/musical actress?

Elsewhere, we discuss why there could be fewer upsets than expected with this new (and improved?) Globes.

One thought on “Experts slugfest: 2023 Golden Globe winner predictions”

  1. I really enjoy both of your predictions, but as with any job, if there’s room for improvement I think it’s best to just come on out with it. The comments below are obviously just my opinion.

    Lately, I’ve noticed a fairly blasé and disinterested attitude when it comes to your tv analysis. You even make references to movie predictions being more fun. It seems like you just kind of want to get it over with, and the insight isn’t as well prepared and thought out.
    I’ve noticed this trend on a number of recent tv-related videos you’ve done.

    I’d just remind you that some of the best content is on tv, and many people watching your slugfests are watching them for that reason. We’re watching to see analysts who are passionate about what they do and what they cover, and who offer expert insight that we couldn’t get elsewhere.
    I politely suggest that the above has been lacking recently.
